Salesman (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 13, 2018
Super competitive but if your good you can make a ton of money. I'm pretty sure its the best paying Honda dealership on the east coast and I'm seriously not exaggerating. Managers are very competent and the CEO always sees the bigger picture. Hardest part is probably not having a day off. being called in on day off to close customers happens often. First sales job and was a grind but have reaped its rewards in my future career.
Reception Manager (Former Employee) – Woodside, NY – January 15, 2018
Sales people are always welcoming and will go above and beyond for their customers. The lot was thriving with business especially on weekends. The GM was always putting the customers needs as first priority.
Sales (Former Employee) – Woodbridge, NJ – September 5, 2016
Paragon was where I started making real money. It was a real competitive and challenging environment because every week and month we had a goal we had to reach and since the majority of those working there are pretty young, we all had that hot temper to beat each other. It was pretty fun and relaxed environment when weren't racing each other to get the most customers.
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) – Woodside, NY – April 7, 2016
If you have kids its hard to keep a life with them working here. They expect long hours and want you to put them first. I lost my job because I had a daughter and took 2 weeks off to help my wife at the time. Like i said if you dont have kids its great place but if you do think twice.
Buisness Devolpment & Sales/Service Associate (Former Employee) – Woodside, NY – September 26, 2015
On a normal day I answered heavy volume of phone calls and internet leads promptly, also offered assistance in service sales and sales of a vehicle for customer. I learned a lot about handling phone calls in a busy environment and also offering great customer service to very complicated customers. Management at Paragon was exceptional the director abused her authority and caused a lot of workers to quit. Co-workers were very helpful and respected the work place. The hardest part of the job was adjusting to the crm change and sales programs we had setup on the computer. The most enjoyable part of the job was making customers happy that they received great customer service and happy about their new vehicle.
Business Development Center Representative (Former Employee) – Woodside, NY – November 18, 2013
I learned a lot. It was a pretty good enviornment. No real advancement opportunities and hard to get paid commission. A tiny promtion was more of a demotion when i made less than half of what I was making prior. Getting a pay plan took forever. Managers forget the line between professonal and personal relationships. Management can be verbally abusive
Auto Parts Consultant (Current Employee) – Woodside, NY – April 18, 2012
High volume service department, plenty of customer traffic, constantly busy so the commission checks are high and the days go by quickly. Union shop with great benefits. Management respectful and appreciative. Long work hours but offset with a 4 day work week and 5 consecutive days off every 3 weeks plus all holidays off.
